PhD position in mechano-chemical organisation in single cells @UPC, Barcelona.

We have an open PhD position to study the mechano-chemical organisation of cells from a physical and mathematical point of view. Individually or collectively, cells move due to mechanical and chemical gradients and doing so they self-organise in very specific forms. Understanding the physical laws under mechano-chemical gradients can head to establish new protocols in the control of cell structures. The final goal of the project is to manipulate cells so that the morphology of cell structures can be predicted, e.g. in biological-based prosthesis.
